If she isn’t named, or charged with making false allegations, it just goes to enforce the idea you can punish people and destroy their lives on a whim using the legal system without worries of repercussions.....I hope the Mr Holden takes civil action at a minimum and breaks her financially.
I'll suspend judgement on the veracity of an account by such a creature until... Hell, I'll never believe the account of such a creature without someone who's not a professional liar and manipulator verifying it.
I wonder how much of the current situation is the result of the desire of the CPS to see more convictions, the generally held belief amongst the chattering classes that all men are sexual predators and that no woman would lie about this sort of offence for whatever reason.

It doesn't take Sherlock to work this one out, does it?
He may give it a run; I would in his place. However the pendulum has swung too far and would need a sea-change in national attitude to ensure that both sides have equal protection in law. As that would include the NPCC pledging to support investigating officers who have legitimately discontinued cases where no evidence of an offence can be found, and the nation accepting that sometimes women say they've been raped when they haven't, don't hold your breath.
Acquainrance rape is an impossible crime to prove beyond reasonable doubt. Sexual assaults of this kind equally difficult. It is possible to assault someone in a room full of people and not be seen. It takes just a few seconds. What was her motive for a false allegations, has she been charged with making a false allegations? A tiny proportion of allegations ever reach the court and even fewer upheld.
Justice comes down to how much money you have. A good barrister will get you off. He can tell his story now and will no doubt be awarded compensation. His life will not be ruined. Hers probably will be. Just afifferent point of view.
